While football is the major fall sport in many of the larger Arkansas schools, basketball is king with many of the state’s smaller school districts. Shown here in 1972 are two of those small schools, Williford (white jerseys) and Biggers-Reyno, competing in the district tournament. This was the first Williford (Sharp County) team to go to the state basketball tournament. Both of the schools have been consolidated and no longer exist.
